Yes - but not really relevant to what I said. He still could have waived the inspection contingency and continued on with the purchase.

But it was already too late, having pi$$ed off the sellers with his request in the first place. They found their contract loophole and took their out, because contingencies do protect both parties. Frankly if the buyer is willing to make the purchase at the original contract, and the sellers are willing to sell at that price, the Realtors should easily make it happen. Sounds to me as though the sellers have deemed the buyer does not deserve to own their castle. So much about being a good Realtor is about managing the emotions on both ends of the transaction. This will make or break a deal.
